The funeral of the space writer and broadcaster Reg Turnill has been held in Kent.
Mr Turnill died last month at the age of 97. He was Britain's first TV space correspondent and popularised space exploration to an audience of millions.
He also followed NASA's Apollo moon programme from the start, befriending legendary astronauts such as Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon.
The Reverend Mark Hayton, the vicar who presided over the funeral, paid tribute to his work as broadcaster and a valued member of the local community.
